One Sweet Woman.

I met a lovely lady last year, but have only gotten to know her well, the past several weeks.Lovely lady's name is Julie Bloemeke.
Here's what I already know about her:
She's compassionate and kind(two qualities that I consistently rate as "most important"), speaking warmly about everyone to whom she refers.
A graduate of Bennington College(novelist Bret Easton Ellis graduated there),she's incredibly talented, keeping her husband and children supported, and pursuing her poetry with the passion required, while still lifting up her many,diverse, friends with that famous-Julie smile, and words of encouragement.
She thinks in future-tense, while never forgetting the past...and she lives in the best way possible: IN THE MOMENT!
I'll be celebrating her 38th Birthday with her, on Saturday(a wee bit after the actual day), at an old favorite haunt of mine, "Einstein's", in midtown Atlanta.
I had suggested Einstein's to her, as it was where I celebrated both my 35th and my 45th birthday.Turns out,(our mutual dear friend) Collin Kelley had already suggested to her-----the very same place!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JULIE BLOEMEKE!

Bonjour Lisa,

Bloemeke is a Dutch or Flemish word meaning little flower.

Don't know her, but she must be cool if she deserves such a tribute!

Lisa Allender said...

Georg--That is too sweet! I believe her husband is Dutch, so that's super-cool, Georg!
btw, my "confirmation name"(from when I was a child, in the Roman Catholic Church) is "St. Theresa of Liseuix"(spell?)and she was known as "The Little Flower".
What lovely synchronicity! :)
David H.--Hi there!
She surely is. ;)
